Hurricane Joaquin Drifting to the Bahamas, but Path Remains Uncertain

A tropical storm that has been churning the Atlantic Ocean this week strengthened into a hurricane on Wednesday, and meteorologists are now trying to determine whether its path will take it to the East Coast.

The National Weather Service said it could not predict yet when or even if the hurricane, named Joaquin, would strike land. The storm was a Category 1 with sustained winds of about 80 miles an hour, making it a minimal hurricane.
